    Yes.  Working in a hospital has made me really anal about this.  I will use antibacterical as well.

    Always soap and water. And I keep some antibacterial stuff in my desk in case I touch something really grimy… Like the NYC subways. 😉

    Soap and water and thoroughly.  A few years back I got sick 5 times during the winter.  Since then I have thoroughly washed my hands when I use the bathroom (i did before but not as attentively) and use hand sanitizer as soon as I get to my desk at work.  I haven’t been sick since. 

    Several women at my job do NOT wash their hands after using the bathroom and I think that’s just disgusting.

    I’m basically a compulsive handwasher, and I can’t imagine not using soap. I’m skeeved out just thinking about it.

    @Mrs. Coyote:  Exactly, I commute by bus/metro and I sanitize as soon as I get to my desk.

    I always use soap now, but I have sensitive skin and when I was a kid I used to react to many of the soaps in public washrooms.  The woman may have the same issue.

    Always with soap and water and I sing “Happy Birthday” to myself to approximate 15 seconds, haha. My mom told me that as a kid and it really stuck with me.

    I used to work in a school where the administration did not supply soap (or paper towels) in the bathrooms.  They reasoned that rubbing your hands together vigorously under water killed the same amount of germs as soap.  They also argued that the kids made too much of a mess with the soap and paper towels.

    Ugh.  Congratulations for raising a generation of kids who do not wash their hands.  Yuck!

    I made sure that I always had hand sanitizer available.

    I’m allergic to that cheap ass soap that crummy bathrooms use. I wash with water so as not to freak people out and use hand sanitizer afterward. If there is nice soap, I’ll just wash with that.

    Soap, water and hand sanitizer! Whoever said they don’t wash their hands, that’s gross and spreads illnesses to others!
